back to article Nokia C5

Nokia’s lower end and mid range handsets might not offer the bells and whistles of the leading edge phones, but they can be solid workhorses. The C5 is a case in point. Just be aware when eyeing up the specs that its small screen means it can’t do some things nearly as well as bigger screened alternatives. Nokia C5 Slimline …

Want!

A perfect second phone to my (oh so old) iPhone 3G. It does texting, calling and satnav, the three things I actually use on my second phone, and the battery seems generous enough.

I would not touch with a bargepole

But would be ideal for my parents....

So a thumbs up.

Now where have I heard of a C5 before?

Named after the Citroen - or the Sinclair?

Mine's the one with the washing machine motor (with pedals attached) in the pocket.

Sinclair C5.

How dissappointing. Was really looking forward to seeing a picture of some Nokia excecutive in an electric scooter being overtaken by a Lorry.

Well yes, I expect you would have a problem seeing the sound output..

Must be a southern thing

"Bushy Road pronounced as in mushy (as in peas) rather than bushy (as in trees)."

Does what it says on the tin

Got this phone a couple of weeks a go as a work phone. quite a good runner at the moment. battey life out lasts my personal iphone 3gs - but no great surprise there. e-mail can be a bit fiddley but what would you expect without a qwerty keyboard.

All round good runner.

Off-line

Without Wi-Fi is it possible to download map data onto a PC for transfer to an SD card. As a PAYG user I wouldn't like to have to top up my phone before each use of Ovi-maps...

Nokia phones and Maps

You should have a usb port, no?

This would mean that you can connect your phone to your pc and download to PC then to phone.

There's a good reason why Nokia is putting maps on all of their phones. (Its called Navteq) ;-P

And of course that's probably one of the most useful apps on a phone outside of using the phone to make calls/text. Now if only they could improve some of their apps...

That kettle...

... must be brand spanking new. Frankly amazed it's not sitting in a puddle of its own water. I give it a couple of months, unless you're hardly ever in.

WTF?

Did you almost forget its a phone?

Why else wouldn't its primary function be mentioned until the very end of the review?

Navs & Small Screens are OK

Navigation is not only for cars (where you do need a large screen for comfort). When you're in the tube, or walking around, particularly in an unknown city, it is immensely useful to have online navigation. And with the phone in your hand, the small screen works OK.
